I cannot seem to be able to get my yum updates working. It
is showing all sorts of dependency errors and I removed:

+ kadu
+ gyachi

and finally the only one left is:


for which I cannot remove.

What can I do to kick-start my yum updates so that
I can later add back in the above removed packages?


This was the subject of animated discussion recently: as I recall, an
update to dbus broke the automatic updates. I know the bug has been
fixed and I think that all that is necessary is to do "yum update dbus".

perhaps a bit more than that... like a reboot.
please see Paul Frields email:

granted the `yum update dbus` might be needed in Dan's case if other packages than dbus are preventing the yum update from finishing.

I had rebooted my system, and on rebooting, the dbus failed to start, rhgb started but logins were prevented in X. So, I Alt-F1, logged in as root, then yum removed fuse-emulator* and was able to start yum updates. The reason being, that there were library dependencies that refused to go away. So, hopefully, if the major updates (1.7GB) are successful, I hope to add back in the removed packages. We'll see how that goes and
I'll post a follow up soon!

Sorry about the multiple postings - these were stopped queued email messages that were blocked and upon fixing the problem at my end, released the queued emails.

Thanks for responding!
